A whole evening devoted to knitting, chatting and drinking tea. Can't get better than that!
Finished the blanket! Four squares by three, each 16 x 16 inches. I crocheted them together, then crocheted around the edge, first with single then double crochet. It's not enough to stop the curling, so I'm going to try washing and machine drying it to soften it up and hopefully flatten things out.
And at last, the Harry Potter scarves are done. The green one on the right was the one I made on the machine, the blue one on the left I handknitted and finished last night. They could do with a wash too, especially the blue one, as the stitches need a bit of evening out.
I'm thinking of frogging (ripit ripit) the brown lacy shrug and making a plainer version on the machine with some handknitted ribbing. The lacy pattern was pretty, but very bumpy on the back, and being acrylic probably wouldn't flatten out like blocked wool.
That just leaves me with ONE handknitting project to finish - my top down raglan sweater - which I'm determined to finish before starting any new major projects. (Note - I said major, that gives me a loophole which allows me to knit small things!)
